Tennessee Coal Ash Disaster Worse Than Thought

29 December 2008 4 Comments Written by: Bryan Moats

Neighborhood FloodedIf you are still riding the fence about what you think of all this “clean coal” stuff you may not have heard the news about the massive TVA coal ash spill in Tennessee just before Christmas.  Here’s a link to a (somewhat humorous) commentary on the recent disaster in Tennessee:

Coal Ash Spill is Much Larger Than First Described | Crooks and Liars.

If you’re just now hearing about this like me, I’d recommend checking it out. The TVA is government owned, by the way. So officially this is a disaster the government created. Doesn’t seem like the news are feeling too pressed to spotlight the significance of that fact. Of course, it wouldn’t be any less despicable if it were a privately owned company or a major corporation. But the situation is made a little more unique given the tragedy of it all.

    My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
